I'm going to be picking up some Astro A40's in a couple of days. I'm currently using some TB X12's, and I'm wanted to move up to surround sound. So my question is to people that have surround sound.... How is it? Thanks.

Very crisp, though there are barely any footsteps in MP.

Gunfire sounds good.

It sounds amazing on my A50s. Even if you have your TV cranked up really loud, you still don't get to hear all the little details these things pick up.

Also, I've heard the A40s are pretty equal compared to the A50s, but the A50s can be upgraded through firmware downloads on Astro's site. If you can spare some extra cash, I'd go with those as I'm banking on Astro patching them for next gen systems.

It's good. I just wish the gun sounds were a little beefier.

I use TB X12s also, with the DSS attachment.

The sound is great.

ASTRO is working on a firmware update right now for the a40's. So why wouldn't they patch them for next gen? Never been a fan of wireless headphones, and I heard the mixamp is better on the a40's as well. But hey, thanks for your input. Guess it all depends on the person.

Also, the part in the game where they play make it bun dem, it sounded like it was 128 kbps or something.
I have the 320 kbps version of it on my ipod, and it sounds like a different song.
